BMW Motorrad Nepal has launched the all-new BMW G 310 R and the all-new BMW G 310 GS in the domestic market. The two most-awaited motorcycles of the year are now available for test drives and are on sale in Himalayan Motorrad’s showroom in Naxal, Kathmandu. The BMW G310R is available for Rs 9,50,000, while the G310GS will cost you Rs 10,90,000.
Newly conceived from scratch, the all-new BMW G 310 R and the all-new BMW G 310 GS mark its foray into the sub-500 cc segment in Nepal. The all-new BMW G 310 R and the all-new BMW G 310 GS have been developed in Munich, Germany by BMW Motorrad and produced in Hosur, India by cooperation partner TVS Motor Company.
Both motorcycles are powered by a completely newly developed313 cc water-cooled single-cylinder 4-stroke engine with four valves and two overhead camshafts together with electronic fuel injection. With an output of 34hp at 9,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 28 Nm at 7,500 rpm, the engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. A remarkable feature of the engine is its backward-tilted cylinder in open-deck design with the cylinder head turned by 180 degrees, making it possible to position the intake tract at the front, viewed in the direction of travel. The motorcycles accelerate from 0 – 50 km/hr in just 2.5seconds and achieve a top speed of 143 km/hr.
In terms of suspension, the all-new BMW G 310 R and the all-new BMW G 310 GS have a torsionally stiff, highly robust tubular steel frame in grid structure with bolt-on rear frame. The front wheel suspension is taken care of by a solid upside-down fork while at the rear there is an aluminium swinging arm in conjunction with a spring strut that is mounted on it directly.
Both motorcycles feature a high-performance brake system with 2-channel Anti-lock Braking System(ABS) for efficient deceleration and short braking distances. The standard multi-function instrument cluster has a large liquid crystal display that offers excellent clarity and a wide range of information.
Also, BMW Motorrad inaugurated its first dealership in Naxal. The new state-of-the-art showroom will be named ‘Himalayan Motorrad’. The new facility incorporates the showroom area for the display of bikes, an exclusive arena for merchandise and a service facility.
